What started out as an innocent post-‘SNL’ flirtation has turned into a full-blown serious relationship.
The couple began dating in October 2021 after Kim hosted “Saturday Night Live” on October 9.
It Was Intrigue At First Disney Sketch Kiss
Despite all the drama Kanye West caused for Kim and Pete in the wake of their divorce, the couple has defied the odds and Pete has hung in there like a champ.
A source exclusively told Us Weekly that the couple is gearing up to make their relationship long distance, because they’re serious about making it work.
“Kim and Pete are even happier now that they can attend events together and be in public. They love spending as much time together as possible,” the insider said.
Pete and Kim made their red carpet debut at “The Kardashians” on Hulu premiere in April.
Kim & Pete Are Happy They Can Be In Public Together
“Everyone in Kim’s family absolutely adores Pete and loves Pete for Kim,” the source revealed. “He fits in so well with her life and with her family.”
Following the reality show’s premiere, Pete and Kim attended the White House Correspondent’s Dinner together as well as the Met Gala.
While everything has been hunky dory for the new couple, things are about to change.
Pete is gearing up to film movies that will take him away from the west coast.
“Pete has some movies coming up that he’ll be leaving to film, so they really have been spending as much time together as possible before he has to leave,” the source added.
Kim & Pete Will Have To Do Long Distance
Kim is 13 years older than Pete and it appears he’s learning a thing or two from his girlfriend.
Us Weekly reports that Pete’s outlook on his future has been heavily influenced since dating the SKIMs creator.
Their source revealed Kim has helped Pete “grow up in a big way.”
But Kim’s not the only one bringing something to the relationship.
Pete has shown Kim what true happiness and excitement feels like again.
Earlier this year, the business mogul gushed about her new love interest to Ellen DeGeneres.
The veteran talk-show host doted on Kim’s newfound glow and attitude, despite her going through public hell with her ex-husband.
Kim went Instagram official with Pete in March. In the photo, Pete is resting his head in her lap while she’s leaning over him giving him kissy lips.
Pete & Kim Are Instagram Official
The ‘KUWTK’ star clearly didn’t know a relationship isn’t official until it’s on the Gram.
“I guess it’s not official until you post on Instagram,” she said before noting that she hasn’t been in a new relationship in years. “I haven’t dated since before Instagram existed, so I didn’t know what the rules are,” she said.
Kim gushed over her newfound relationship and how happy it’s made her.
“I always encourage my friends and the people that I love to just be happy and I went for it. I was like, ‘You know what, I’m in my 40s, like f**k it. Sorry. Like go for it. Find your happiness,” Kim explained. “And like, I went for it, and I took my time, and I found it and it feels so good, and I want it to hold on to that forever.”
